The magazine is a different sized format to what we are used to here, quite cute actually… it contains the usual advertising but also interviews, shop reviews, products reviews, projects, articles and general news…. quite a bit of reading actually.
This issue has an interesting test drive on several embroidery floss brands.. They were tested by a range of stitchers from young and new to older and experienced. Pleased to see that my preferred brand Presencia fared well.
On their website at www.generationqmagazine.com they post a few times a week, with projects, review, features, columns and other fun stuff – and that’s all free.
This mag finishes with a list of 25 cool embroidery sites they have chosen… alas not mine….. feeling too old to be cool….but some good and interesting ones there..
I was asked a couple of years ago it feels like to do a project for their upcoming embroidery issue…. it has taken I am sure almost two years for it to come out in print but its here now…
I used Colourworks solids from Lloyd Curzon Textiles (Northcott) and they were great to work with – I very rarely work with just solids and it was fun to do so….
The bit you have been waiting for….. I have four copies of the mag to giveaway….
So, the first four orders that are placed on the website – with free GENQ mag written in the comments – will get an extra surprise with their order…
okay, now I need to go ‘cool up’ my website…and maybe make next years list!
hugs for today, be back soon with Europe pics to share….
